Q: What book to buy as inexperienced university teacher?

I taught for one year in Chinese high school international departments and private training centers, then took a 3 year break, and now I'm back about to start teaching at a university in Guizhou. Thing is, I'm really bad at planning. I feel like it'd be super helpful to have a book I could more or less base my courses on. Any recommendations?

download from "the great courses" on a torrent site the title "the art of teaching". A professor with 20 years experience teaches the class on videos of about 30 minutes length.

What Engles said...

 

Plus - so, you[re not experienced at teaching at university.. what qualifications do you have

 

I mean, tp teach language in China, you're supposed to have some sort of TESOL qualification - surely you have this, and they've taught you how to teach...????

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
